My name is Zachary Beukema. I have a passion for learning, personal development, strategy and travel. I also love helping people discover and pursue their dreams.
After networking my way to Wall Street, I spent two years as a top ranked analyst before being promoted to third year analyst. During my time as an investment banker, I served on recruiting teams, took part in on campus information sessions, pre-interview dinners and helped interview candidates. After three incredible years as an analyst, I decided to turn down my associate promotion to pursue my own entrepreneurial ventures.
